A message from your CARE Chester team

Our Medical Director, Victoria Sephton and I wanted to keep you up to date with what is happening currently here in Chester now that we have received authorisation from the HFEA to start treatments again.

We continue to take new referrals and we are conducting initial consultations by telephone/Skype with our Medical Director, Victoria Sephton and fortunately there is little wait for this. Because CARE Chester is linked to an NHS hospital, we will be increasing our treatment provision steadily.

We are available by telephone or email for:

New consultation, follow up consultation and counselling support booking by calling 01244 677797 or emailing

Support and answers to all of your queries by our nursing team on 01244 366858 or via email at

Most importantly, if your treatment had been put on hold because of Covid-19 please do not worry. We have a record of everyone whose treatment has been delayed and you will be our priority when we are able to re-start treatments once again.

Our team will be contacting you shortly and will be arranging to send you your treatment consent forms for completion so you are all ready to start your treatment when we can. If you have not yet received contact from us, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us by emailing us at, and we can provide you with an update.

Semen Analysis: We can now offer diagnostic semen analysis, completing this part of  your treatment journey will ensure you are as progressed as possible for when treatments resume, please contact our new patient enquiry team or our clinic team to book.

AMH Testing: we can now send you an AMH test through the post, all you have to do it take pinprick of your blood and send it back for testing

Counselling during COVID-19: continuing support with telephone and online Zoom appointments

The very best patient care and support is at the heart of what we do, which is why counselling is free and available to everyone at CARE.

Every one of our clinics, including CARE Chester, has a dedicated counsellor, and though they are currently not offering in-person meetings to help minimise the spread of COVID-19, our counsellors are ready to listen with telephone and online appointments available using Zoom.

Our counselling sessions are an opportunity to talk through your thoughts and feelings, and can be really useful if you’re finding treatment stressful or if you’re feeling anxious in these confusing times.

Contact us to find out more about our counselling services or to book an appointment – there is always someone to talk to at CARE.
